FAMILY SECRET, a paranormal mystery for young readers by Author Kay LaLone, will keep you guessing who the good guys are and who are the bad, at least it did me. There’s never a dull moment. Just when I thought we’d have the answers to Tom’s dilemma, the author threw in a twist. As Tom attempts to solve the mystery of why someone is after him and why people keep getting killed, he discovers that his father has kept secrets from him all his life. Even his mother had her secrets. And he begins to suspect that the same person that’s after him may have killed his mother.
Kay LaLone has written a novel that will keep you guessing, along with Tom, if he can trust anyone, even his own father.. FAMILY SECRET is the story of a family that in protecting their son from the truth not only made him insecure but put him in danger as well. This is a good story for lovers of mystery and for those who enjoy a touch of magic.
I loved the paranormal aspects of Family Secret. The depictions of the demons were extremely well done. The story is filled with twists and turns and some unexpected elements that added to the thrill. The secrets of the family are woven well into the story. The scope of those secrets surprised me as well as other characters in the story. Tom's longing for his mother comes across as genuine, and young readers will be able to relate to that as well as to the complete character of Tom. This is a clean read that ages 12 and up will enjoy, especially boys. I enjoyed reading this.
What I Didn't Like:
I thought the story started off slow. It wasn't until chapter seven that I found myself caught up in the action. Tom's continual protestations of being called a kid could have happened less. I think there were other aspects of his character—like his genuine love of his mother and his puzzlement and anger of his father—that better served as descriptions of him. As always, the English teacher in me cringes at the misuse of the English language, particularly when the wrong words are used and problems in sentence structure.
I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This is the second book of Kay LaLone’s that I’ve read and it is just as good as the first. She has a wonderful talent for weaving a tale with the normal being vanquished by paranormal evil. In Family Secret, she brings us a typical sixteen-year-old boy who hates being called a kid. The book takes the reader through a paranormal adventure in the way only a boy can handle what he has never believed in. Once I opened this book, I couldn’t put it down until I came to the very satisfying ending. Family Secret is definitely a book I’ll read again and again.
I highly recommend Family Secret for teens who love the paranormal, especially boys looking for a good adventure.
